Central Emission Register of Buildings (hereinafter referred to as ”CEEB”) is a system containing information on heating sources for buildings in Poland. CEEB shall support the fight against smog.
The CEEB base was launched on July 1, 2021.
As a result of the aforementioned, property owners or administrators are obliged to submit a declaration to CEEB on heat sources used for heating their properties. The obligation applies to both residental and non-residental estates.
Subject to CEEB notification are property heating devices and installation, in particular: a heating network, a solid fuel heating boiler, tiled stove, a solid fuel fireplace, oil boiler, gas fireplace, gas heater, a coal stove, heat pump, electric heating installation and solar panels.
The terms for CEEB notifications submission are as follows:
- 14 days from the first start-up of the device or installation, in the case of new heat sources,
- 12 months from the date of CEEB commencement ( July 1, 2021), i.e. until June 30, 2022, for heat sources already in operation.
Reporting a heat source to CEEB can be made in the following forms:
- electronically, by filling in the form available on the website zone.gunb.gov.pl. (signed via a trusted profile or an e-identity card).
- written, by filling in the form by hand and sending it by a post or delivering it in person to the city or commune authority office competent for the location of the real estate in question.
Types of forms to be filled in:
- Form A is for residential buildings and premises.
- Form B is for non-residential buildings and premises.
Penalties for failure to notify on time the heat source to CEEB amount to:
- a fine of up to PLN 500,
- and if the event of a court case, up to PLN 5,000.
Even if a CEEB heating source declaration is submitted after the deadline, the penalties can still be avoided, but only provided the obligation has been satisfied before the day on which the mayor or the city president learns about the delayed submission.
Legal grounds: act on supporting thermo-modernisation and renovation and on the Central Emission Register of Buildings (Journal of Laws of 2021, item 554).
